Maalbeek

Documentary Film France 2020
By: Ismaël Joffroy Chandoutis

MAALBEEK is a journey into amnesic territory, in the immemorial memory of the attacks of the 22 March 2016 in Brussels. The film plunges us into the bombing of the eponymous station through a new point of view: that of a woman with amnesia, having survived the explosion, in search of reconstruction and her own identity.
The visual concept is based on a hybrid montage of archive images and 3D animation that work in tandem on the motif of fragmentation. The animation of the film, made from real shots and then transformed by various technical processes, shows an inner landscape composed of exploded views of the metro station, as if the image of these memories had also been subjected to the physical shock of the explosion.
